IEEE International Conference on PHYSICAL ASSURANCE and INSPECTION of ELECTRONICS
Physical inspection of electronics have grown significantly over the past decade and is becoming a major focus for the chip designers, original equipment manufacturers, and system developers. The complex long life of the electronic devices coupled with their diverse applications are making them increasingly vulnerable to various forms of threats and inspection. Large industry and government efforts have been put in place across the globe to address related supply chain security problems to offer solutions, training and services. The number of programs introduced by US government have increased over the years to analyze and develop relevant solutions. Although much focus is given to digital domain, physical assurance and inspection of electronics as well as physical fingerprinting based on analog parameters are rapidly providing opportunities for unique countermeasures.
